At only 22, British singer-songwriter Dan Croll has already kicked up a storm of buzz in his native country with his unique cocktail of charming, melodic indie rock and sleek, subtle electronic pop stylings. While attending the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, he won numerous awards and was even chosen to be among a select few students given the opportunity to meet Sir Paul McCartney for a one-on-one chat.

On the heels of his successful single From Nowhere, released last fall, and his imminent follow-up single Compliment Your Soul, Croll is currently embarking on a US tour, including a gig tonight at the 7th Street Entry.

After braving the snow on a drive from Chicago, Dan Croll and his band made it to the Current studio to play a few songs and chat with host Mary Lucia.

Songs played: "Compliment Your Soul," "From Nowhere" and "Only Ghost."
